Looking to access Safe Ministry Training?
Everything you need to know about Safe Ministry Training
Safe Ministry is a journey that starts when you first get involved in ministry to vulnerable people – children, teenagers and adults – and continues for the duration of that ministry.
And so, it is essential that all people involved in Anglican ministry to the vulnerable, including children and teenagers, are thoroughly equipped and trained for that journey with approved Safe Ministry training.
The Anglican Diocese of Sydney is an endorsed training partner under the Safe Church Training Agreement which is a nationally agreed standard for Safe Ministry training. The diocesan Professional Standards Unit is responsible for the administration of this training in the Sydney Diocese.
All people working with children or youth in ministry, including ministers and assistant ministers, are required to complete Safe Ministry Essentials, and then every three years undertake Safe Ministry Refresher training.
What some people say about online training…
A very professional, well thought out and well presented online course.
As a senior person I was not sure how I would go. However, I found it quite easy to follow and seeing in written form actions that I should have taken some nine years ago in my own church situation, has made me aware for future.
I think all members of a Parish Congregation/s should undertake this training to be made aware of such things as Boundaries/Abuse of Power/Control people/ and our young children's ministry.
I think there has been a lot of time and effort put into developing this and it is a fantastic resource, and a good way to get the most number of people trained.
I have sat through so many child protection seminars both as a volunteer and professionally, most of which were boring and presented as a way to tick a box. Safe Ministry Training was thorough, engaging, educational and inspiring and professional. You really took it to the next level. Thank you and well done.
Very good course that covered all aspects of working with children. Gave me a greater awareness of what to look out for and how to get help if required.
I just wanted to let you know that I thought the choice of case study for the Live Webinar was excellent. It was a realistic case study which highlighted very clearly various stages of grooming and boundary violation. Having two teenagers myself it is easy to imagine how easily this situation could arise.
Thank you for a well thought out Webinar.
